Pet Vaccinations

Emeryville Animal Hospital

At Thornhill Pet Hospital, we know that keeping your pet up-to-date on their vaccinations is vital to their health. Vaccines are designed to protect pets from a variety of viral and bacterial diseases. Our vaccination protocols are tailored to your pet’s individual needs, depending on their species, age, and lifestyle. Vaccine schedules are based on the recommendations of the AAHA-AVMA Preventive HealthCare Guidelines Task Force and are detailed below for both dogs and cats:

Canine Core Vaccines:

The DHPP vaccine protects your puppy or dog against several diseases, including:

Canine Non-Core Vaccines:

*Due to the recent outbreak of canine influenza in various parts of the country, we require that all dogs with boarding, grooming, and/or daycare appointments receive their flu vaccinations. Canine influenza is highly contagious and some of its carriers do not show symptoms. We offer the bivalent flu vaccine, which offers protection for pets against the H3N2 and H3N8 strains of the virus. A booster is required 3 weeks after the first injection. Symptoms of canine flu include elevated temperature, ocular and nasal discharge, coughing, and lethargy.

Feline Core Vaccines:

Dr. Yang recommends FVRCP vaccination for all cats (indoor/outdoor and indoor only). This vaccine protects cats from several viral diseases, including:

Feline Non-Core Vaccines:

Cats that go outside also need the following vaccines:

When your pet comes in to receive their vaccinations, we’ll discuss their specific lifestyle and medical requirements with you to ensure that they’re receiving the protection they need. If you have any questions about pet vaccines or if you’d like to schedule an appointment to have your pet vaccinated, we invite you to give us a call at 510-339-2041.
